Human Resources Assistant II (Former Employee) – Norfolk, VA – January 11, 2016
I enjoyed working with the team I work with for the most part. However, management team is another story and there is lack of communication. The people who are actually doing the work are the ones that get the least money. Overall it is not a bad place to work if you know the right people in the right places.
Productive environment always room for advancement

Dance Instructor and Choreographer (Current Employee) – Norfolk, VA – December 4, 2015
A typical work day would look like, saying hello to my manager, checking my mailbox, and looking at my teaching syllabus for the say. Then I would greet the students at the door as they come in. I start class with a check in with each of my students in a circle (this helps to get all the talking out and telling me about their days in the middle of class. Mainly for the little ones). Then we would stretch, depending the age group and class, we would begin our warm ups and barre. Then we would go to the teaching portion of class where students would learn fundamental dance skills through combinations and drills. Lastly we would end with a short combination combining the skills that were learnt during class. I would have my little ones line up at the door and when they were quiet, I would have them show me something that they are working on (plie, positions etc.) so that they could be permitted to leave. For the older students, I would give them instructions on what to continue working on at home. The most enjoyable part of my job is seeing the lightbulbs and excitement go off when a students who has been fighting to get a step down, finally gets it. To see the growth in students is the most rewarding thing and the reason why I am here. To ignite their passion for dance in new, fun, and creative ways.

Benefits Specialist II (Current Employee) – NORFOLK, VA – September 21, 2015
THE BEST PLACE TO LEARN HOW BENEFITS ARE ADMINISTERD TO GENERAL PUBLIC. THE HARDEST PART OF THE JOB IS NOT BEING ABLE TO HELP THOSE PERSONS THAT DON'T MEET CRITERIA. THE BEST PART IS BEING ABLE TO MEET AND COMMUNICATE WITH PEOPLE FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE.

Telecommunication II (Former Employee) – EOC – July 27, 2015
Typical day in EmergencyTelecommunications, rotation shifts, high stress. Management needs to be more balanced out and the people who run the center should have knowledge of what is done on a minute to minute basis. Hardest part of the job is usually not knowing the outcome of a situation you are in constant fight or flight mode.

Full time Lifeguard (Former Employee) – Norfolk, VA – October 9, 2014
I worked here for 7 years and used my CPR/AED and First Aid certifications in other parts of my life. I was able to work directly with the police and Fire Department, which taught me a lot about public safety and safety in the work place. However, I did not always work with team players and had trouble with the laziness of some of my co workers.
